Hi fellow A/V enthusiasts!
I am currently in the market for a new panel & recent research (on cnet.com, a/v forums, & talking w/ techies) has shown that the 2008 Pioneer Kuro Elite PRO-111FDhttp://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-10054347-1.html might be one of the “best flat-panel displays ever tested” (according to David Katzmaier of cnet.com).
I was wondering if you would be so kind as to give me feedback/input/thoughts as to what your opinion is of this panel.
According to Katzmaier, the Kuro “…produced the deepest black levels we’ve tested outside of OLED and the most-accurate color, and in most other important picture quality areas it performed admirably.”

I have not seen one in person yet. There are a couple of individuals in SoCal that are currently selling their used sets so I was wondering if I should risk purchasing an older Kuro w/ no warranty or save for a top of the line Panasonic, Sony, or Sharp Elite? :confused:
Although Katzmaier has said the Pioneer Kuro is better than the Sharp Elite PRO-X5FD LED – “The Kuro still produces a better picture overall, especially from off-angle.” Although the Sharp (who had a licensing agreement with Pioneer to use the Elite name) is able to handle 3D sources and is 70-inches.
I’m looking for a panel to display HD content for editing clients, viewing Blu-ray material, & for HD gaming. Any help would be greatly appreciated! 😀
Also, if you can please guide me to some other good & reliable television review sites that you personally use that would be wonderful too! Thanks in advance guys!
